House calls: Please telephone before 10:30am. We will ask for some details – a full description of the problem is helpful so we can work out which calls are urgent.
Urgent calls: Any urgent call will be dealt with by the duty doctor. In the evenings an out of hours service is on call for emergencies, please telephone 111.
Test results & ambulance bookings: Please telephone after 2:00 pm Monday – Wednesday and Friday or 3:00 pm Thursday.
Travel vaccinations clinic: Initial appointments should be 6-8 weeks prior to departure as all courses must be complete no later than 2 weeks before travel. Please collect a form from reception. Some vaccinations are chargeable.
Sharps Bins: If you bring a bin for disposal please make sure that it is locked (you will be asked to demonstrate this to a member of staff) and you have written you name on the box and signed it. We are not able to accept a box if this has not been done.
Ongoing health problems: While you can see any doctor in the practice, we would encourage you to see the same doctor for ongoing health problems.
